Board Member

An interdisciplinary environmental health scientist by training, Karen Andrade has expertise in community-based participatory research and a robust track record of engaging diverse communities in science. The breadth and depth of her scientific experience is coupled with a firm conviction in the need for cross-disciplinary approaches, and an enduring interest in exploring the role of science in society. Karen is particularly interested in analyzing the power dynamics of scientific knowledge production from her own positioning as a scientist who occupies multiple axes of minoritization. While in graduate school Karen’s interest in exploring new paths to inspire support of, and engagement with, science led her to found and direct the UC Berkeley Science Shop. This student-led organization facilitated research collaborations between students and San Francisco Bay Area communities. Karen completed postdoctoral fellowships at Stanford and the University of California, Davis, where she led biomedical and environmental health research to benefit marginalized and vulnerable communities. Karen earned a Ph.D. in Environmental Science, Policy & Management from the University of California, Berkeley. She is currently a Civic Science Fellow at the Science Philanthropy Alliance, and is eager to contribute to OEDP’s focus on ensuring data works for communities.
